If you must change your appointment, call us as soon as possible. This courtesy allows us to schedule another patient for orthopedic care. Every effort will be made to see you as close to your scheduled appointment time as possible. However, you may notice other patients called ahead of you, although you may have arrived first. We try to honor a patient’s appointment time whenever possible, rather than the order in which patients arrive. Patients requiring x-rays, casting, splinting, or bracing may be called earlier in an effort to use appointment time more efficiently.
